Moser Presented Continuing Service Award

LOVELAND, Colorado – The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) presented Dan Moser, Westmoreland, Kansas, a BIF Continuing Service Award June 22 during the group’s annual meeting and symposium in Loveland, Colorado.

Continuing Service Award winners have made major contributions to the BIF organization. This includes serving on the board of directors, speaking at BIF conventions, working on BIF guidelines and other behind-the-scenes activities. As BIF is a volunteer organization, it is this contribution of time and passion for the beef cattle industry that moves BIF forward.

Moser is the president of Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI) and director of performance programs for the American Angus Association, headquartered in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Dan was raised on a small seedstock cattle operation near Effingham, Kansas. He earned his bachelor’s degree in animal science from Kansas State University and his master’s and doctorate in beef cattle genetics from the University of Georgia.

For the first 20 years of his career, Moser served as a faculty member at the University of Georgia, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Kansas State University. He spent 15 years at K-State, where he taught genetics and animal breeding, conducted applied research, advised undergraduate and graduate students, and served as faculty advisor of the purebred beef unit. His research focused on developing and utilizing genetic prediction tools in order to improve cow-calf profitability.

In his current role, he oversees genetic evaluation programs, genomic testing services, business activities and member education efforts for AGI and the American Angus Association.

Moser has served the beef industry in a variety of leadership roles and is currently serving on the BIF board. He served as breed association liaison for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association’s Carcass Merit Project, studying the genetics of beef tenderness and other carcass traits in 14 breeds of cattle. He was also a member of the Ultrasound Guidelines Council (UGC), which oversees certification of beef cattle ultrasound technicians and technology. He is a former board member of the National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium.

Dan and his wife, Lisa, have two sons, Justin and Ryan, and a daughter, Allison.

More than 600 beef producers, academia and industry representatives were in attendance at the organization’s 50th annual convention in Loveland. BIF’s mission is to help improve the industry by promoting greater acceptance of beef cattle performance evaluation.

The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) is an organization dedicated to coordinating all segments of the beef industry — from researchers and producers to retailers — in an effort to improve the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of beef production. The organization was initiated almost 70 years ago to encourage the use of objective measurements to evaluate beef cattle. Continuing the tradition, BIF is now the clearinghouse for developing standardized programs and methodologies for recording of performance data for all traits, from birth weights to carcass traits. Its three-leaf-clover logo symbolizes the link between industry, extension and research.
